“Everyone’s expecting us to go down, so let’s make history,” says Timlin

Michael Timlin won the Esquire Developments Man of the Match this afternoon on his home debut and the vocal midfielder wants his teammates to defy the odds whatever it takes this season. “Everyone’s expecting us to get relegated,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “We’ve been in the bottom zone all season so if…

A difficult one to take

Kevin Watson may have suffered a second Saturday defeat but he felt his side deserved so much more this week than the late loss at the hands of Stockport County. “It’s a little bit of a difficult one to take. We tried to play in the right manner,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster….

Fleet 0-1 Stockport County

As they did at Edgeley Park, Stockport County pulled the rug from under the Fleet in the final minutes to come away from the Kuflink Stadium with their first win here. It was a tough result on the Fleet who had certainly done more than enough in matching their opponents for a draw, although neither…

Fleet plan for profit from Stockport exchange

It’s a useful stat for the Fleet to take encouragement from – that they haven’t lost back-to-back games since Kevin Watson took over – but adding back-to-back wins will be crucial as the season’s remaining games tick down to single figures.

“Winning is everything” says mercurial Mekki

Adam Mekki slotted into his wide left berth at Maidenhead last night and promptly provided the energy and drive – not to mention a pair of assists – that saw Fleet score three goals for the first time since October. And the Bromley loanee insisted sticking together is the only way his side are going…

Gameplan carried out “to the letter”

Kevin Watson had warm words for individuals but was keener to praise the team effort that earned a crucial three points at Maidenhead United on Tuesday evening. And he was pleased as punch that his side did everything he asked of them before the game, off the back of a potentially morale-sapping defeat at Chesterfield….

Maidenhead United 1-3 Fleet

Fleet got the win their precarious position absolutely demanded with a superb first-half response and a stalwart second-half stand that brought them to within five points of their opponents. Josh Umerah equalised a dubious early Maidenhead goal and Gozie Ugwu fired two efforts within a minute of each other on the half-hour for the points….
